QUOTES FROM Lindsay Duncan CHARACTERS

Helen Kingsleigh
Must you always be so head-strong?
Alice Kingsleigh
No. It's just more fun that way.
Tim's Mother
Its very bad for a girl to be too pretty. It stops her developing a sense of humor, or even a personality.
Katherine
Never lose your childish innocence. It is the most important thing.
